Dawn Ultra: Elite Super Premium Gloves Review

Dawn Ultra: Elite Super Premium Gloves Review & Giveaway

As a crafter my hands get abused constantly, despite mt best efforts to keep them safe.

When I work on projects I often use disposable gloves, which due to the flimsy nature, only allows for one use. I always reflect on what a waste this is, and always think I should invest in a more permanent pair for painting. When I saw that Dawn Ultra had a pair of gloves I was curious if a permanent pair really was the right idea.

Croscill: Crestwood Grey Quilt Collection Review

Croscill: Crestwod Grey Quilt Collection Review + Giveaway

If there is one thing I really love, it is a comfortable bed spread. Many years ago when I was young I would always change my comforter set. What this ultimately did was give me quite a collection of blankets and sheets for my friends to use when I hosted slumber parties.

Now that I have my own house, I am always finding the need for blankets and such. I still love to change my bed spread but it is much longer between upgrades than when I was young.

Recently I began the process of redoing our master bedrooms bedding. The process started with new pillows, than sheets and now the next element has arrived – the Croscill Crestwood Quilt with Shams.

Simply Earth Monthly Subscription Box Review – February 2017

Simply Earth: Essential Oil Recipe Box – Be Healthy – February 2017 – Review + Giveaway

As I get older, the less I want to put harmful chemicals in my body. The more that time passes the more I realize our natural immune systems can kick in and really do more than over the counter medicines can. When the natural immune systems needs help, many people turn to essential oils to give nature a boost.

A month ago I reviewed Simply Earth and their monthly subscription box, so when I saw this month’s was healthy focused I was again eager to try out some essential oil health remedies.

Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome – December 2016 Review

Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome – December 2016 Review

Now that the holidays are wrapping up and a new year dawns, I am reflective of the year past. At the end of the year I try to summarize my accomplishments, note my failures and set new goals for the year ahead.

One of my goals in the coming year is to pay it forward. I find that simple actions of kindness are becoming less common. As time goes on and if we do not keep this movement going, then generations below us will lose that common kindness. So this coming year, I am going to share my good fortune and when I receive items in boxes I am not going to use and pay it forward.

Each month when I receive the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome by That Daily Deal.com I think of those moments of kindness that can be paid forward. Each month no theme is chosen, but rather a selection of random gender neutral items that will undoubtedly meet a need of yours or a lucky recipient.

Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome – October 2016 Review

Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome – October 2016 Review

october-box-of-awesomeThere is no denying it – the holidays are upon us and with that comes family get togethers, meals shared, photos taken and gifts given.

If you are anything like me, I tend to like 2 types of gifts. The first being the useful ones that I have been wanting. The second is “white elephant” gifts. I have discovered that while it is great to get a heart-felt gift, there is something mysterious and random about getting a gift that may or may not have any use in your life.

The downside to this gift giving is that while the “white elephant” gifts are sometimes the best part of the holiday, the fact is it is only really once a year. At least that is what I believed until I started receiving the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome by That Daily Deal.com. Each month no theme is chosen, but rather a selection of random gender neutral items that will undoubtedly meet a need of yours or a lucky recipient.

box-of-awesome-september-2016I have mentioned in the past that I love random mail – the problem with mail these days is that there is not a lot of random involved.

Each month, similar to the regular box that is offered, there is no theme is chosen. Instead of theme a random selection of 2 – 3 gender neutral items are included in this white package.
